It’s just one thing after another. The injury bug has already taken what looked like one of the league’s best defensive backfields down hard. Both starters Brandon Flowers and Kendall Lewis are out for who knows how long.
With those two out for the beginning of the season, that spells big trouble for KC.
I know the Chiefs are pretending these injuries are just day-to-day, but I smell a rat. Both could be out for weeks.
Now the worst news: Perhaps the best player on the team, Tamba Hali, appears to have failed a drug test. Word is it was weed that got him in trouble. But almost all NFL Players of color smoke weed and many white players as well, so he’s just an example. In any case, now our most important guy is OUT for game one against Atlanta for the home opener.
Now all of a sudden shades of last season are raising their dark heads.
I even bought in before the St. Louis mess Saturday night. Now? Well, 8 and 8 is starting to sound good. The Chiefs went from a one point favorite against the Falcons in game one, to a 4 point dog.
Take the Falcons.
So the bad news is starting to pile up and fast for our Chiefs.
I am giving them a look see, but for now, I’m off the bus.
Maybe the next two weeks will change my mind…and yours, however it’s looking pretty bleak. Damn, we have all that new talent, but we can’t throw down field and our defense is falling apart with three starters gone…for now.
Oh I almost forgot, Scott Pioli and Clark Hunt will be quick to tell you we are building for the future…like 90 years from now. I say its now or never for this team to grow up.
I hate to say it, but I think more problems with these players is just a few days away.
